Those having their rebellious roots in the civil unrest of the ’60s are dead.
Don’t forget the passage of civil rights laws have actually addressed a lot of the issues from that time that fueled it. Things may not be perfect for black folks, but they are a hell of a lot better then they were in the 50s. segregation and Jim Crow is dead, and you can’t get black people to fight today without a darn good reason. Improvements tend to take a lot of steam out of any talk of rebellion.
A personal side note: When black folks hear “Make America Great Again” and talk of a wistful longing for a simpler time like Ozzie and Harriet, they think segregation, colored water fountains, and the back of the bus, not wholesome family values and respect for the flag. If you’re talking to your black friends/co-workers/associates, you can help easy a lot of the tension on an individual level by separating what was great about the “good old days” from those things. Trust me, It helps to hear it from people you know.
